Please complete and return before Friday 15 April. Contact Cliff Walton on fax 033 413 2790, e-mail or phone 082 804 8303 for details.

Certain questions in the quiz are based on information from the Enviro Facts and the E-Info Box.

Enviro Facts are information leaflets or fact sheets covering a range of environmental issues such as "water, "global", "tree", "pollution and waste", to name a few. The fact sheets provide an overview, or orientating framework for each topic or issue.

The Enviro Facts Project is sponsored by Pick n Pay through the World Wide Fund for Nature, South Africa. The resource is published by Share-Net (a division of WESSA) and is supported by many environmental groups such as the Wildlife & Environment Society (WESSA), KZN Conservation Service and Endangered Wildlife Trust, among many others.

E-Info portable libraries are a valuable source of information on all aspects of environmental issues, developed and produced by the Share-Net division of WESSA at the Umgeni Valley Project, Howick.
